Arsenal defender Granit Xhaka criticised his team-mates after their performance in Tuesday’s 2-0 defeat at Newcastle, saying If they’re nervous they should stay at home.
The midfielder felt his side’s display showed they could not handle the pressure of chasing a top-four spot.
Victory would have moved them above Tottenham into the UEFA Champions League places with one game remaining.
However, while speaking with newsmen, former Manchester United defender Gary Neville criticised Xhaka’s comments.
Although the Gunners Manager Mikel Arteta also admitted that Newcastle deserved to win “by a mile.”
The result means Arsenal must beat Everton at home on Sunday and hope Tottenham, who are currently two points ahead and with a much better goal difference, lose at relegated Norwich.
